LoneStar has re-issued three Tuf-Tots models, the CitroŽn DS, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the Mercedes 250SL as 'Zippy Zoomers' (1983 - 1985). These models had a hook moulded to the back of the bottom plate and were sold together with a 'garage'. By means of a rubber band it was possible to 'shoot' the cars out of their garages.

The moulds from the original Lone Star Tuf Tots series were used by Microlink to produce a series called 'Mokes' later.
